It's my personal one & it was happened in my 8th age. You can feel this as a normal story but when ever I remember this it will make me to laugh always.
My Dad is a chain-smoker. Since my childhood I loved the style of his smoking . But my mom always hate(d) his hobby & argued around million times with my dad to leave that hobby . One day evening when I returned from school, I have seen the cigarette pack in my dad's shirt which was put in anchor in hall, well nobody in hall. I reduced one from that pack & ran to back garden which was empty. Oh Idiot, I forgot the match-box. Then I went to kitchen found that & back to garden. Even I didn't know how to smoke a cigar . I just lighted the cigar & put in my mouth but I didn't know how to continue that. Suddenly I got an idea, previous day I was played with bubbles help of soap water with straw. So I tried to blew forward from the cigar like Blow out the candles in birthday.Hmm.. Nothing happened . Then tried some times but nothing as same as previous one. Then I remembered my dad's style. Got it.. Like drinking cool drinks by straw . So I tried that way. It was worked but... Almost I finished a 1/4 of cigar with a single puff. I felt that 1/4 went in to my lung . I was @ terrible situation & coughed continuously almost for 15-20 minutes & almost died . I didn't know what to do next. Then I found a tub with full water. I just pushed my face into that for a minute or two. It made me cried . Then I went to bathroom, brushed & taken bath, went to dressing room....
[After some time]
I was watching some Hindi movie in DD channel in TV but without listening. I hated cigar @ first time . I tried to sleep at early. But the incident remembered my mom's arguments with dad about cigar. While thinking after some time I got sleep . Still Her words hearing in my ears & I'm just following her way till my death. That's my first & last time I have smoked. BTW I never touched Drinks too.
My kind request Please quit your smoking at least for your mom, better half & your kids.

I started smoking because I was a very stupid 14 year old kid, unaware of the consequences and attracted by the forbidden. I'm really glad that didn't get to you.
Now it's a very difficult thing to quit smoking, just spending a day without one makes me a different and worse person. Many people say they don't understand how someone educated like me could be smoking. They always tell me to stop.
1 - The problem is, when I started, I wasn't educated enough.
2 - Once a addicted, it does not depend on the education anymore.
I really appreciate your iniciative. Hopefully, I'll manage to quit sometime.
I would like say thanks to you because i am really too much serious today actually i am also a chain smoker @ the age of 24 years (might be around 20-30 cigars/day). So now on-words I have decided to leavingthis.
Thanks a Lot.

This only works on native English speakers or non-native English speakers who are very fluent in English and thus their brain shuts off prepositions and other meta text. Non native speakers will be a little slower in comprehending any piece of written text and will thus be more sensitive to the physical words (rather than their overall meaning).
Funnily, this can be used to test if a speaker is native or foreign
Wow I love winter. But I know there it is extreme. Best is when temparature is around 10 degree C.
It's not winter yet here, it's still fall. 45 F today (approx 7 C). I actually like living in latitudes with four distinct seasons, I think it gives you a whole different perspective about life and nature
Did you know that the word gullible doesn't appear in any dictionary?
If you ran this as a magazine poll, half of the respondents would reply that they checked and that it is indeed missing from their dictionaries and blame it all on a government conspiracy to take away words from their language.
